Canada is a wonderful country to immigrate to. The weather, the culture, lifestyle, and heritage everything is so mesmerising that one cannot hold on the thought of having to start a life there. In India, Canada is one of the most chosen countries for immigration. It is a country that respects every individual, irrespective of the profession he/she is into. The people there identify the hard work of others and encourages a simple life with high living standards.

Why Canada is a top country for immigration

Canada is an English speaking country that identifies French as its main language as well. Other significant language spoken and written there is Punjabi, a popular north Indian language. Immigrants try to find a home away from home because of this and they do not feel isolated or new to the place. There are so many punjabis living in Canada with a PR and many more are planning to shift too. This is also another reason why Indians feel comfortable shifting to Canada for higher studies. One does not feel out of the place because of the low language barrier.

Canada Immigration Program

Moving to Canada is not a farfetched dream anymore. With proper documentation and will to move out anybody can go and live in the paradise. There are so many immigration programs that are put out by the Canadian government for the ease of the immigration process. They too are looking out for immigrants that can live and contribute to Canada’s GDP and economy.

There are various immigration plans that are available for obtaining a PR visa in


  • Express entry system

Provincial nominee programs

Provincial Nominee Programme or popularly known as the PNP programme is one immigration programme where a Canadian province can nominate an applicant. Here, the nominated applicant gets an edge over the other applicants because of the referral. Certainly, a true Canadian citizen can only refer. This is often the least preferred program chosen because finding a Canadian citizen who can back for you is tough and requires a lot of legal processes.

The most popular and best Canada immigration program out of these three is the express entry program where clearly an immigrant is selected on the basis of the skills and education and how he/she can serve the country in terms of finance, economy and overall growth.
